How Employee Engagement and Company growth are linked

Employee Engagement is the level to which employees are emotionally and intellectually vested in the work, their team, the organization, its customers, products and services. Highly engaged employees are more motivated, committed to stay and work beyond expectations. On the other hand, disengaged workers are the root cause of high turnover rates, absenteeism, and low quality output. These factors contribute to poor organizational performance. Growth is based on performance; therefore employee engagement should be a critical factor in organizational strategy. According to a recent Gallup poll, companies with engaged workforces have higher earnings per share. Companies with an average of 9.3 engaged employees for every actively disengaged employee in 2010-2011 experienced 147% higher EPS compared with their competition in 2011-2012. This data shows that there remains a strong correlation between employee engagement and growth. Employees are a company’s biggest assets, for that reason, keeping employees engaged leads to a great competitive advantage in the market. What are you doing to keep your employees engaged?
